St. Joseph's Church
Call to Ministries
Sharing the gift of Jesus Christ
Stewardship is an essential element in a church community. Stewardship is often divided into three categories: Time, Talent, and Treasure. The spiritual and physical well-being of a parish can be measured by the extent to which its parishioners freely give of themselves in these three areas. The time and talent are manifested in the various ministries that are familiar to us all.
St. Joseph's should and can have enough participants in various ministries to ensure adequate coverage at all celebrations, with flexible rotation schedules that will allow each minister chances to attend masses as a communicant. We have the potential to be a fully endowed vibrant faith community, with many parishioners who assist with important ministries at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Bring your gifts
The door is open, the welcome mat is out, and the request is made that you, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, might step forward! The main requirements for most ministries are faith and willingness - most roles require a minimum of training. (Training will be provided). The time involved in most cases: attendance at Mass.
Please consider this invitation thoughtfully and prayerfully. If you hear the call, please call Fr. Tom at 978 632 0375, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org! Do it soon -- you'll be glad you did!!
- The ministry of hospitality sets the tone of welcome, even before the Mass begins. You can welcome others, just as Christ has welcomed you.
- Altar Server.
- Parishioners of any age (and either sex) can assure that Jesus Christ, in the person of the Priest, is attended properly.
- Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in proclaiming the Word of God in the Liturgy of the Word.
- Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist (formerly designated 'Eucharistic Minister').
- The Eucharist is a gift to be given and received. The interaction between the giver and receiver is an expression of the communion that lies at the heart of the church's identity.
- Music ministry (choir / cantor).
- Everyone in the church is part of this ministry, but you may have a special ability in this calling.
